    Ummm...what's the deal with this, and why is the seller passing off a clearly non-Warwick bass as such? And what's the deal with the crazy huge W on the headstock? To me, it looks like a Samick, or something similar.

    If I am wrong in my skepticism, I grant whomever sets me right, a bounty of...carrots!

    Oh yeah, it says 24 frets, when there is clearly only 22 (not that I care), but learn to count, fer cryin' eye!

    I only count two pickups, as well. I guess a P pickup equals two?

    The whole crux is that the bass looks like a somewhat-almost-near decent instrument, just not $500 worth. I have seen that crazy W on other bass headstocks somewhere on older TB threads before, usually along the lines of "This can't be a Warwick" threads, but where did it come from?

    Gotta go pack a lip!

    The only warwick thing about it is the price, and the huge-as W on it.
    But its all done wrong, wrong, WRONG!
    DONKEY!

    Headstock looks like a Ibanez SR
